Motorola unveiled its 2019 mid-range smartphone lineup in early February, and the company began selling the $299 Moto G7 smartphone in the US a few weeks ago.

If you’ve been holding out the cheaper Moto G7 Play or the Moto G7 Power with its massive battery, the wait is almost over.

Motorola says the $249 Moto G7 Power goes up for pre-order March 15th and it will be available starting March 22nd. The $199 Moto G7 Play goes up for pre-order March 29th and ships April 5th.

The phones should be available from US retailers including Amazon. Best, Buy and B&H as well as

All three phones feature the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, but the $299 Moto G7 has a higher-resolution display and more RAM and storage than its lower-priced siblings. It also has dual rear cameras, while the others do not.

But the Moto G7 Power seems like an intriguing option for folks that are more interested in long battery life than anything else. It has a 5,000 mAh battery, a 6.2 inch, 1520 x 720 pixel display, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

The phone has a 12MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, and a TurboPower charger that Motorola says can provide up to 9 hours of battery life from a 15 minute charge.

Motorola’s Moto G7 Play, meanwhile, is a smaller, cheaper phone. it has a 5.7 inch, 1512 x 720 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 3,000 mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera.

All of the new Moto G7 series smartphones have USB type-C ports, microSD card readers, 3.5mm headphone jacks, fingerprint sensors, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.2.

Interestingly none of them seem to support 802.11ac WiFi expect for the Moto G7 Plus, which isn’t offered in the United States.

  1. Thanks for this update. I have been waiting for notification of available stock from B&H on the G7 Play. So it’s nice to have a better idea of when to expect it to be in stock. Though I’m not decided yet on which phone to get.

    I’m probably in the minority but I prefer the smaller form factor of the Play, and it appears to have slightly larger bezels around the sides of the screen which helps avoid unintended screen presses.

  2. I took the plunge and bought a Latin American Dual Sim Moto G7 Power XT1955-2. Have to say it has amazing battery life. I get 12-14 hours of screen on time and have no issues breaking 40 hours on a charge. Performance is pretty good. No stutters or delays opening apps. The 720 display looks pretty good, the notch is pretty big though. WiFi is only 2.5ghz, probably a software limit, in other Moto models flashing a different firmware activates 5ghz. Have not played with the camera much, I did install the Google Camera and am comparing it with the stock one. I have not used the Turbo charge function, just using my multiport generic USB charger and takes a few hours. Not a fan of fast charging when I don’t need it.

  3. After a bunch of galaxy S phones and the iphone 6, tired of need to charge up at the end of the day, I tried the Moto G6 Play (4000 mah) battery. Really pleased with the battery life, though the 28nm snapdragon can be sluggish at times. The G7 Power should almost double the battery life the G6 Play (5000 mah battery and 14nm snapdragon) and be substantially quicker. I honestly don’t understand why more phones do not get larger batteries.
